Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
 Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:
 Thy seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me.
 Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, The LORD hath redeemed his servant Jacob.
 And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out.
 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
